We are flying on Saturday afternoon to Alaska, and my traveling companion is having a tooth extracted tomorrow (Thursday) at 8:30 AM under general anesthetic. His dentist is saying he can't fly Saturday because of potential tooth pain and bleeding. We are flying on commercial jets with full pressurization.

I'm reading that this is not true, because it will be sufficiently healed and there will be no tooth to have pain in. Is this true? If there are stitches, could they be taken out on Saturday morning, pending no complications?

advised to delay the extraction

The last time I had surgery I was left awake and paralysed during a general anaesthetic and was very combative when I woke up.

I had no risk factors for intra operative awareness when it happened and believe that it was a result of serious neglect on the part of the anaesthetic provider. The hospital denied any knowledge of the incident when I asked about it, which meant that I was given no psychological or physical support or advice on which, if any, medications that I should avoid in future surgeries.

How do I communicate this concern with subsequent surgical providers and what steps can I take to feel safe in a surgical environment going forward?

doctor1 MD

Brief Answer:
Vivid anesthetic agents. needs to take detailed OT note from the hospital.

doctor1 MD

Brief Answer:
Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Hello,
I am a 77 yr. old female who had surgery on the 4th and 5th toes a year ago. I requested from the anesthesiologist not to give me the usual dose, I am super sensitive to strong medicines. For 4 days I realized that my scalp was frozen, as well as my intestines. I experienced a sudden spell of vomiting, which happened again 2 days later. I was driven to the ER because I did not know the reason for this.
By now, I do know. Please confirm. XXXX

doctor1 MD

Brief Answer:
More info is required.

Detailed Answer:
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.

So if I understand correctly what you want to confirm is the suspicion that those symptoms are due to the anesthetic used.
I am afraid that some more information would be required....

I was give propofol for a procedure and was curious how long it normally takes patients to actually wake up. I was apparently in the recovery room for close to 30 minutes before I was actually awake, although the nurse thought I was awake before that because she complained that I had already asked her a certain question 3 times.

For the last few months Ive been having symptoms of GERD , thats what my PCP is treating me for. I told him I have pain on the left side just above my clavicle in the hollow area. He felt to see if I have any swollen lymph nodes and says I dont. Now the pain has spread to my right side, and feels like it is in my collarbone towards my sternum and Im having bad pain in my chest just below collarbone on right side. At its peak I feel bubbling. Any idea what this could be? It is not relieved with any pain killers.

I am looking at the different generic brands of Fentanyl Transdermal Patches and saw the differences in the amount of fentanyl that is released into the bloodstream. Mallinckrodt is 2.75mg, DAVA is 2.75mg, Actavis is 2.5mg, Watson is 2.5mg and PriCara is the most at 4.2mg. Is that dangerous when we as patients get whatever comes in from our pharmacies (and what is covered by our insurance)?
